When will McDonald’s start serving Krispy Kreme doughnuts?

McDonald’s and Krispy Kreme have announced a partnership to bring the popular doughnut brand to the fast-food chain’s outlets across the United States. Starting later this year, a phased introduction will see Krispy Kreme’s glazed, filled, and frosted doughnuts available in participating McDonald’s restaurants, with nationwide coverage expected by the end of 2026. This collaboration aims to significantly increase Krispy Kreme’s accessibility to customers through McDonald’s extensive network.

Krispy Kreme President and CEO Josh Charlesworth expressed enthusiasm about the deal, predicting it would more than double the doughnut company’s access points across the country by 2026. McDonald’s USA’s chief marketing and customer experience officer, Tariq Hassan, highlighted the opportunity to expand their breakfast offerings and sweet treats sold throughout the day, including three specific Krispy Kreme varieties.

The partnership announcement has already made a positive impact on the market, with Krispy Kreme shares jumping nearly 30% following the news. This collaboration marks a significant step in fast food and restaurant chain partnerships, aiming to create new business opportunities and enhance the dining experience for customers in the United States through 2026.
